Tyrone Davis - Music Artist Band Bio

Biography

Born 4 May 1938, Greenville, Mississippi, USA. One of the great unknowns of soul music, Davis has been a consistent chartmaker for over 20 years. This former Freddie King valet was discovered working in Chicago nightclubs by pianist Harold Burrage. "Can I Change My Mind' (1968), Davis" first chart entry, was originally recorded as a b-side, but its success determined his musical direction. A singer in the mould of Bobby Bland and Z.Z. Hill, Davis was at his most comfortable with mid-paced material, ideal for the classic "Windy City" orchestrations enhancing the mature delivery exemplified on "Is It Something You've Got" and "Turn Back The Hands Of Time", a US number 3. During the early 70s his producers began to tinker with this formula. "I Had It All The Time" (1972) offered a tongue-in-cheek spoken introduction, while the beautifully crafted "Without You In My Life" (1973), "There It Is" (1973) and "The Turning Point' (1975) emphasized rhythmic punch without detracting from Davis" feather-light vocals. The artist continued to enjoy success, with "In The Mood" (1979) and "Are You Serious" (1982) becoming substantial R&B hits.

Davis has remained an active performer, finding a stable home at Malaco Records. As the singer's extensive catalogue suggests, he is a greatly underrated performer, although there appeared to be a breakthrough in 2002 with the success of Love Line.
